I am not traditional. At least when it comes to my reasoning. Sometimes I like to do things a little differently. And with that, I want my son to recognize those things that are a little untraditional. Unique. And embrace them. To look for new ways of doing things. To be creative!
The world of design is always changing. What our children view and need to recognize are not things we would have ever come in contact with when we were children. My son spends countless hours on his iPod. We spend time on the internet. The variety of books and their illustrations are amazing. But what he sees on his apps, what he sees in his books, is unique from piece to piece. And he needs to learn and recognize that there are different ways that some letters are viewed. Yes, I’m talking about fonts. So when I created these flashcards and the alphabet wall art, I had that in mind. There are millions of fonts out there, and I want him be able to recognize that this “I” might not look like this “I”, but they are still both an “I”. And there are different ways to write a lowercase “a”. My artwork reflects a variety of types, and many ways that your child might view them. They are never too young to start learning and it’s never too early to start teaching.
